The 3 founder members recently attended the district conference in Scarbourgh.
It was a one day conference packed with excellent speakers covering a broad range of topics.
There was an update on polio eradication.
Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 35 years. Our goal of ridding the world of this disease is closer than ever.
As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we've reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979.
Rotary members have contributed more than $2.1 billion and countless volunteer hours to protect nearly 3 billion children in 122 countries from this paralyzing disease. Rotary’s advocacy efforts have played a role in decisions by governments to contribute more than $10 billion to the effort.
Today, polio remains endemic only in Afghanistan and Pakistan. But it’s crucial to continue working to keep other countries polio-free.
A very moving talk from Kateryna Mashchenko with an update on the humanitarian situation in Ukraine
A riveting update on environmental issues and projects, and so much more, including a lighter interlude from the excellent Rory Bremner.
Here are our 3 founding members enjoying the multitude of stalls and displays being showcased.
